77023: Barnabas, Human Warrior: Another timed painting exercise


Recommended Posts

My friend and I have been discussing the GW contrast paints.  He's getting decent results in less than an hour.  So I figured I'd try timing a paint job from "primer" to finish again.

 

After basecoating, I'm at about 2.5 hours on this one.  The undercoat for the metallics and basecoating everything else took about 1.5 hours of that.

 

77023: Barnabas, Human Warrior is an old Bones mini and some of the detail suffers accordingly.  His sword is a little noodly too.  I'm not too interested in fixing either of these in a timed paint.

 

So, here's where we are:

The paints used thus far are: (all Reaper paints unless specified otherwise)

  • Flesh: Barbarian Flesh
  • Armor, shield, and sword hilt: Tarnished Steel painted over Stone Grey
  • Sword blade: Honed Steel painted over Stone Grey
  • Most leather parts: Ruddy Leather
  • Belts, straps, and accents on scabbard: Tanned Leather
  • Cloth: Monarch Purple
  • Gold accent on shield: Cursed Gold painted over Ruddy Leather
  • Purple symbol on shield: Sparkling Purple
  • Buckles: Aged Pewter
  • Base: Dungeon Grey

 

The basing is green stuff used with a Happy Seppuku base stamp.  I don't remember which one now.

 

I'm not sold on the purple symbol on the shield.  Would it look better using a bright silver or white (e.g. Pearl White)?

 

Lining will help the shield immensely.  I'll probably do that as the last step.  The next step is washes.

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.
